I had to send back this vacuum cleaner. I ...

Debbie, Amazon
20 October 2014
  • Summary: I had to send back this vacuum cleaner. I had done my research thoroughly, however, there is a powerful "wind tunnel" which blows a tornado out of the top of it. What that did was to stir up ALL the dust that was already in the room -- which wasn't so much, but enough to make it hard for me to breathe. I went to sleep propped up the first day I used it, because the wind-tunnel of air had me breathing a LOT of dust.

Broke after three months

Andrew Collette, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The rotating brush tool doesn't work on my (1/8 inch pile) carpets; it jams and doesn't spin. Then, after three months, the telescoping wand broke (won't latch) so it's effectively useless. The warranty is crap too... the "7 years" thing is only for the motor & casing (not parts which break), and they will only service vacuums bought from "Authorized Miele Dealers". Is Amazon an authorized Miele dealer? NO ONE KNOWS.

Vacuum doesn't work on carpet!!!!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 December 2013
  • Summary: The unit runs quietly and seems to have good suction. However the carpet vacuum attachment is quite narrow and the beater bar doesn't run. Even with just a small string or lint build up, it jams and keeps the motor from spinning the beater bar. Therefore, the vacuum doesn't pick up well on any carpet surface. I wish I had bought a Sears Kenmore instead.

Returned it

  • Summary: I bought this vacuum for my mom after I read all the great reviews, but she returned it because she thought the vacuum head was too wimpy for carpet vacuuming, especially with pets.

Not for pet hair or hardwood floors!

J. Skinner "campground bookaholic", Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: We just moved into a new house with hardwood floors. We have two australian shepherds. I choose this vacuum based on reviews from other people with hardwood floors and pets. When vacuuming carpet or hardwood all the pet hair catches in the roller and has to be constantly cut off and removed. It is hard to roll on the carpet, easy on the hardwood but does not pickup the hair on the hardwood. If my husband hadn't thrown out the box I would send it back.

Thought I wanted this very badly..

  • Summary: When my husband and I recently registered for our wedding, you have the entire store at your mercy. I picked out this vacuum mainly because the person told us it was lightweight and quiet. It was the first purchase my husband I made off our registry, because I couldn't wait anymore to see if a guest would buy it for us. I was psyched to vacuum, scary. I got it home, put it together, and HATED it. I wanted to love it, I really, really did.

Waste of money, poor product

JacobD733, bedbathandbeyond.com
10 April 2011
  • Summary: This canister may be made in Germany, but it is a terrible product. This "basic" model is a pain to maneuver, and it doesn't have good suction. To add to it's woes, you have to change the bags every month if you plan on vacuuming regularly. There's no hepa filter included. When I went to vacuum my oriental rug it hardly worked. Apparently the more expensive models come with a beater brush, but this one doesn't. What a joke.

i wanted to love this vacuum

trina turner, Amazon
27 August 2010
  • Summary: i truly thought i needed to own a miele. i think now that i have owned one, i should have bought one 20 years ago when they were well-made. i own a residential cleaning service and i have used many different types of vacs through the years. my favorites are always the older mieles that certain homes have had for 20 or more years. you cannot buy the quality of those vacuums today.
